Organizer: Barnes Foundation

Where: Barnes Foundation

2025 Benjamin Franklin Parkway
Philadelphia, PA 19130 United States


Enjoy an evening of art, live music, cocktails, and light fare at our monthly First Friday mixer. This March, we welcome Philadelphia’s own Black Pearl Chamber Orchestra, directed and conducted by Jeri Lynne Johnson. This performance at the Barnes is part of an international series of concerts celebrating Women’s History Month and the 20th anniversary of the Taki Alsop Conducting Fellowship, a two-year award supporting women conductors. Tonight’s program features Israeli-American cellist Inbal Segev playing DANCE, a concerto commissioned by Segev from Grammy-nominated composer Anna Clyne. Segev’s 2020 recording of DANCE topped Amazon’s classical concertos chart and was named one of NPR Music’s “Favorite Songs of 2020.” Cocktails and light fare are available for purchase. Seating is limited. More information here.
